Valentine's Day Cake Decorating!

What a fun day we've had!  Since we were closed two days last week, we moved our Valentine cake decorating, along with our Valentine's parties, to today.  This morning, those who signed up for a cake got to make it pretty with lots of sprinkles and icing!  Here's pictures from our fun morning (and there are quite a few!).

Goodnight Week - February 3-7

We've had a fun week talking all about nighttime!  We've learned about bedtime and bedtime routines, like brushing our teeth and taking a bath.  We've also learned about nighttime animals, stars, and the moon.  We've read classic stories, like Goodnight Moon and Good Night, Gorilla.  Here are pictures from our week of yawning and learning!

The one-year-olds made glitter moon and star pictures, sponge painted owls, and enjoyed a pajama day.  They also did a few experiments, like making "elephant toothpaste", and the classic baking soda and vinegar bubble fest!
